As OrbiturtleDave JacksonKo Omura and I are over the moon to announce the launch of Joganji - the album of improvisations we recorded with the incredible Japanese musicians Michiyo Yagi on koto and bassist/cellist Takashi Sugawa over three days in residence in Osaka's Joganji Buddhist Temple in January 2017. We're deeply grateful to the Australia Council for the Arts for their support to make the project a reality, and the temple master Michiaki Kouno for welcoming us to the use the space - which with its gilded shrine and intricate wood carvings, along with the dustings of snow outside, catalysed some magically connected music making. The music and a short essay on the residency can be found at, or! Digital downloads of the album come with an accompanying 16-page PDF photo & liner notes booklet.
